LOST Theories - DarkUFO

The Gates of Hell by Jane S

Tartarus is a place said to be as far beneath Hell (Hades) as Heaven is high above earth, (per Iliad c. 700 Zeus). It is said that if a bronze anvil falls from Heaven, it will take 9 days to reach Earth. From Earth, it would then take an additional 9 days to fall to Tartarus, making it approximately 2,964,853,124 kilometers deep (about the distance from the Sun to Uranus per Wikipedia). This distance is important to LOST it’s the distance 2x9 then a combination of the LOST numbers 48 15 16 23 42. This is just the beginning. This may explain why the Ankh is always facing upside down, as if it is falling from Heaven. The realm of Hades is a place of the dead, Tartarus has it’s own inhabitants. This place was used to confine dangerous to the gods of Olympus, then it became a place where punishment fits the crimes. This brings up the story of Sisyphus who was forced to roll a large bolder up a mountainside, over ! and over again.

Could this be why they had to keep pushing the ! button and why Sayid is still a killer on the island? Tartarus is both a deity and a place. Per wiki, A deity is a postulated preternatural or supernatural immortal being, who may be thought of as holy, divine, or sacred, held in high regard, and respected by human beings. Deities are depicted in a variety of forms, but are frequently expressed as having human or animal form (Zoo on the island). They are usually immortal, and are commonly assumed to have personalities and to possess consciousness, intellects, desires, and emotions similar to those of humans. Such natural phenomena as lightning, floods, storms, other 'acts of God', and miracles are attributed to them, and they may be thought to be the authorities or controllers of various aspects of human life (such as birth or the afterlife). Some deities are asserted to be the directors of time and fate itself, to be the givers of human law and morality, to b! e the ultimate judges of human worth and behavior, and to be t! he ! des igners and creators of the Earth or the universe. It is sai! d to imp rision Hecatonchires, giants with fifty heads. Could this explain the whispers of many people? According to Plato (c 44) there were 3 judges of the dead who went to Tartarus. Rhadamanthus judged Asian souls; Aeacus judged European souls and Minos was the deciding vote and judge of the Greek. See a similarity to the 3 main father characters- Christian, Sun’s dad and Whitmore? This leads me to what’s under the shadow of the statue….the gates to Hades. Hades is surrounded by rivers, the river Styx was the last threshold to getting into the gates of Hades. I believe this is what lies beneath the shadow of the statue. The river was guarded buy a ferryman. Sometimes the ferryman was called Charon. Could this be Richard Alpert? I can also explain the black and white theme through the story of the eye of Horis. (From Wiki)

Horus, the son of Osiris and Isis, was called "Horus who rules with two eyes." His right eye was white representing the sun while his left eye was black representing the moon. According to Egyptian legend Horus lost his left eye during a fight with his murderous uncle, Seth, to revenge his father's death. Seth tore out his nephew's eye but lost the fight because the assembly of the gods declared Horus the victor. The eye was reassembled by the magic of Thoth. Then Horus gave the eye to Osiris who experienced rebirth in the underworld. The story of Osiris has all ready been played out via Claire and Charlie. Charlie being Osiris, who will show up very soon again. It is said that his head was buried in a temple and has the ability to transport individuals all over the universe. It is called the Djed pillar. This will be showing up before the end of next season and explains how they are able to leave the island and come back. Read the theory by my friend S.D. Wynn Kabbalah-pass! ! ion play Osiris and Isis.


Through the magic eye (glass eye), found in a trunk by the tailes in season 2, along with a bible and walkie talkie, Ben was able to see where the Oceanic 6 were when they left the island. The term “Tartarus” is only found once in the Bible, at 2 Peter 2:4 “God did not hold back from punishing the angels that sinned, but, by throwing them into Tartarus, delivered them into the pits of dense darkness to be reserved for judgment”.

What still needs to be defined is who is what character in this explanation of LOST and what exactly is “the Game”. I welcome comments and suggestions. We all know that LOST is made up of many theories, so please do not attack my thoughts in a negative way, but bring creative ideas and facts to back up what I have started.

We welcome relevant, respectful comments.
